An evening with Jean Peters from Peng! Collective, Berlin
Jean will inspire with examples of his own and other groups actions and discuss what lessons can be learned.

Should culture jamming be used as tactics in organized campaigns or should we advance it as decentralized, spreading tactics? What potential does culture jamming have for structural change, and how can we measure it?

Borderline Digital 25.2

Borderline – program (Hebrew)

 

StreetView (1)

Participating artists: adi kaplan and shahar carmel together with Dudu Carmel and invited musicians, shira legmann together with musica nova consorthadas ophratlezli rubin-kundajosef sprinzak

Invited artists: Guy Yitzhaki and Dafi Sapunar, Yonatan Amir and Ronen Eidelman

“Borderline” is the title of two performance events featuring new works that address the space of the former Hansen leper house, and engage with cartography, mapping, and drawing in space.

Cartography, as a field of knowledge that encodes the space and delineates the connections between space and identity, employs the language of drawing in order to express political, economic, and social worldviews, all the while preserving and founding perceptions of identity. The works in “Borderline” will offer a different mapping of the space, whether through a revised reading of existing maps or the creation of alternative poetic maps.

The wall of Hansen House – which marked the separation between normal life and abnormal life – serves as the borderline, the initial point of departure for some of the works. The Hansen wall, residue of the outside self-defense against the inside, marks the space of a ghetto, of exile within the city, and serves as an architectural metaphor that echoes other walls. The works in the series of performances engage with the conceptual and concrete notion of the borderline: its delineation, erasure, or blurring. The borderline appears in the works as a formal or metaphorical line that separates and unifies its two sides, produces situations of passage, blockage, schism, or destination, and materializes in the encounter with agents that indicate its existence: customs, police, border crossing, conflict between different interests.

The aspiration towards a utopian borderless space, a plan for a space without lines, was the dream of architect Rodriguez (the pseudonym of João Delgado), who had signed his business card “Arch. Rodriguez – Plans without Lines: an architect on a tightrope”.

Invisible Borders & Participatory Documentary in Contested Spaces

Nitin Sawhney, Assistant Professor of Media Studies, The New School

In this talk Nitin Sawhney, Assistant Professor of Media Studies at The New School, will reflect on recent experiences from participatory urban workshops and documentary film projects conducted in Moscow, Gaza and Guatemala.

He will share outcomes from a workshop conducted at the Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture and Design in Moscow this summer. The Invisible Borders Lab (moscow.bordr.org/) engaged designers, urbanists, researchers, and performance artists in revealing the unusual borders, social conditions, and thresholds of transformation in Moscow. Participants investigated people’s perceptions of borders in the city through techniques such as urban mapping, social research, game design, location-based digital narratives, social network analysis, visualization and performance.

In the second part of the talk, Sawhney will discuss participatory media projects he has been undertaking including two recent documentary films, Flying Paper (FlyingPaper.org) about creative DIY kite making and flying with youth in Gaza and Zona Intervenida (zonaintervenida.org) about memory, body and genocide through performance with artists in Guatemala. We will consider methodologies, technical and aesthetic challenges in engaging participants in such creative visual investigations through the medium of documentary film.

free admission – the talk will be held in English

The first exhibition of Mamuta at Hansen will open on December 29. The project, which incorporates art, cinema and performance, will feature eight artists who were artists-in-residence at Mamuta in Ein
Karem: Asya Lukin, Itamar Mendes-Flohr, Guy Yitzhaki, Hagar Goren, Hadassa Goldvitch, Zemer Sat, Yarden Erez, Einat Amir and Sala-Manca Group, which also curates the show.

The entrance to “Living in a Film” is every full hour (for detailed hours and dates see below).

The viewers are led by a movie usher named Esther, a girl born to a Jewish Orthodox family, who left religion and fell in love with the usher of the Lisbon Cinema, which operated in the cellars of the leppers’ house in the city of Lisbon in Portugal between 1963 and 1973 (the era of Salazar’s dictatorship – and managed to serve as the underground nerve center of freedom fighters, right under the regime’s nose). In the wake of her love to the usher she also fell in
love with the art of cinema, and because of that love was banished from her home.
